Product Story

One of - if not the most - iconic designs of the 20th Century, the Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman personifies mid-century cool. Designed by husband and wife duo Charles & Ray Eames in 1956, this ‘updated version of the old English club chair’ set a benchmark in the history of furniture manufacturing, combining luxurious comfort with the highest-quality materials and craftsmanship. The lounger has an unmistakably modern shape while the leather upholstery harks back to the tradition of English armchairs, beginning with William Morris’s late 19th century designs.
